Ceritanya saya mau ikutan meramaikan #tigernimation by @wwf_id karena saya suka misi #iprotecttigers : melindungi Harimau Sumatera supaya tidak hanya hidup dalam dongeng. Karena Tigers are real, they are not mythical creatures. Animasi ini dibuat frame by frame dengan tinta dan kertas-kertas bekas ujian (yang sudah dibuang oleh pemiliknya). Selain untuk eksperimen visual juga karena #savepaper could #saveforest To #savetigers Untuk info lebih lanjut tentang Harimau Sumatera dan hewan lain, please follow @wwf_id , they know better than me :) #tigernimation #iprotecttigers #Wwfid #globaltigerday
WWF Indonesia held an animation challenge called "Tigernimation". As you may already guess, it's about protecting Tigers. The deadline was at August 10, I didn't really have time, because I was handling many projects. But... it's a challenge and I like challenge.
So I collected unused exam papers (I have my own source) and made handdrawn animation.
What so called quick project was not a really quick project. Because the tracing desk was too tall, I got back pain and stiff (and blistered) hand.
But the animation was finished at August 2nd. I was planning to upload it at August 9 but... They postponed the deadline to August 25.
I know the audio is crappy, and I certainly could do better with the visualization but no. I really have jobs to do, so I left it as it is.
And if you search "Tigernimation" in instagram, you will find a lot of good animations. So I kinda happy I made handdrawn and rustic animation, because if I made digital and colorful animation there are way too much animation with pretty visualization and technique.
Anyway, this project was really fun. Drawing on exam paper is actually really entertaining. I specifically choose papers with a lot of numbers/ math formula on it.
Of course I already ask permission to use them. If I didn't use the paper for the animation, the paper would end up as a food wrapper or I don't know, trash? By the way there are a lot of empty answer, what a waste of paper right?
